Not knocking him or Vancouver.

Just want some discussion on who the worst legit 1st liner is of the 16 teams who made it.

I think he is probably one of them, since I had a hard time picturing him as a first liner when the Sedins were dynamite. But now that they have slowed down, he has as well.

So if not Bur, who is the worst 1st line guy?

Sure, why not

I mean, we're already 1 game in. It's definitely time to start speaking in absolutes.

Burrows isn't really a "first liner". He fits extremely well with the Sedins but before that discovery he was a 2nd/3rd line tweener. Hard-worker, great penalty killer with a pretty solid set of skill.

It's like calling Pascal Dupuis a "first liner" and Malkin a "second liner".

Abdelkader has been on the 4th line pretty much every season and while his play has improved he's not someone you want in your top 6.

Galiardi has been playing well lately, but in terms of skill set he is probably up there in terms of worst 1st line players.

Sharks are weird though they don't play there best players on the top line; they spread the talent out.

He didn't ask who the worst first liner of the playoff season is.

He's asking who is the worst first liner of the playoff teams.

The question is who is the worst player that is on the 1st line from the teams that are currently in the playoffs not based solely on the playoffs. At least, that's how I took it.

Did people already forgot to read this...? It's WAY too early in the playoffs to be insinuating who is the worst first liner in the game.
